Mapp v. Ohio
On June 19, 1961 the Supreme Court ruled on a 6-3 vote that evidence obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment is not accepted as valid in the federal court
With an anonymous tip that Dollree Mapp was suspected for being a part of a gambling ring and harboring a bombing suspect, the police searched her house with a supposed search warrant.
And the discovery of obscene materials had Mapp convicted. The ACLU argued that the conviction was unconstitutional because the police violated the 4th amendment by not producing a search warrant.
The significance of this case was the introduction of the "exclusionary rule" to the legal systems.
